Apologies for the short notice, but I just found out that the submissions period for the Tamale Hut Café 2016 Short Story Contest is now open. The link above goes to the contest’s Submittable page where you can get more information and submit your story. Basically, they are looking for complete stories of 3000 words or less, and it doesn’t matter what genre you work in. You only have to submit your story through Submittable by
June 20, 2016 July 22, 2016, and you must be available to attend the Tamale Hut Cafe Reading Series night on November 19 to present your work and receive your prize. Did I mention there are cash prizes?
DISCLAIMER: The Tamale Hut Café Writers Group has nothing to do with the contest other than to promote it, as we do with the monthly Reading Series events, and to encourage our members to submit some of their best work. If you want feedback on your story before submitting it, send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the mailing list, and plan to attend either the June 18 or the July 9 meeting at the Tamale Hut Café.
